I have installed Force.com IDE (see versions of all components below). If I try to do something simple like increase the length a custom text field, I get
File only saved locally, not to server
Save error: Conflict found while preparing to save 'Account.object' to server. Remote instance has been updated since last save or sync. Use the Synchronize Perspective to resolve the conflict. Account.object /MA Dev/src/objects line 1 Force.com save problem
I refreshed from server and then got this 8 times:
Refresh error: Metadata API received improper input. Please ensure file name and capitalization is correct. Load of metadata from db failed for metadata of type:ConnectedApp and file name:Salesforce_Chatterbox. package.xml /MA Dev/Referenced Packages/Salesforce1 and Chatter Apps line 1 Force.com retrieve problem
Spring '16 Dev Org with custom domain
Spring '16 Force.com IDE (36.0.0)
Eclipse Mars.2 (4.5.2)
Java 8 Update 74
Windows 7 64 bit
I have reviewed other threads, I needed to click 'work online' as default was offline, still having above issues.
I can sync the object with server and the changes are propogated but this has to be done every time.
